4.0 out of 5 stars gloriously cheesy and gory
I was seriously impresed with this disturbing film about tribal beliefs and rituals. The story itself is a bit far-fetched, but still it manages to hold your attention as a group of people go in search of Susans (Ursula Andress)husband, unbeknown to them that they are being followed by strange people in weird masks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Naked Ursula
Mountain of the Cannibal God is one of the better cannibal films and has a good cast. The Best dvd comes from Blue Underground with a nice 16:9 transfer of the longest version ever ( with scenes not in any other version ) and has an interview with director Martino.

The UK dvd has been cut by the bbfc to remove scenes of animal cruelty.
If you are planning...

3.0 out of 5 stars Naked Ursula, 8 Mar 2009
Mountain of the Cannibal God is one of the better cannibal films and has a good cast. The Best dvd comes from Blue Underground with a nice 16:9 transfer of the longest version ever ( with scenes not in any other version ) and has an interview with director Martino.

The UK dvd has been cut by the bbfc to remove scenes of animal cruelty.
If you are planning to buy the uk dvd make sure you get the original Vipco rlease as it is a doulbe sided disc with Widescreen on side a and full screen ion side b the only extras are bio / filmography for Stacy Keach, theatrical trailer picture gallery and trailers for other vipco discs. Avoid the later Vipco disc as it only offers the full frame version.

I was seriously impresed with this disturbing film about tribal beliefs and rituals. The story itself is a bit far-fetched, but still it manages to hold your attention as a group of people go in search of Susans (Ursula Andress)husband, unbeknown to them that they are being followed by strange people in weird masks. There is a fair bit of gore along the way with animal and human sacrifces. Not the best acting in the world, but then i never expect films like this to be up for an oscar. If you enjoy movies with gore a plenty and cheesy storylines then this is a must for your collection, if you dislike such sceens as animals being eaten alive and people being killed in various gruesome ways then stay clear!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Mountain of the Cannibal God, 30 Jun 2010

This is one of the better entires into the Cannibal genre. The acting is good and director Sergio Martino handles the film very well and avoids making it come across as chessy.

This version has all the blood and gore you would excpect from this kind of film such as, beheadings, people having their insides eaten and people having their heads smashed in. The film also has the beautiful Ursula Andress been stripped naked and having orange mud rubbed all over her by a couple of amazon women. This version is however slightly cut and has a couple of scenes removed. Still this is one of my personal favourite cannibal films and has my favourite score by composers Guido and Mauirizo De Angelis.

The quality is very good and the disc had both the widescreen and standard versions on a double sided disc.

3.0 out of 5 stars DECENT CANNIBAL FLICK !! !! !!, 23 Feb 2006

This review is from: The Mountain Of The Cannibal God [1978] [DVD] (DVD)
Im a big fan of zombie/cannibal/B-movie horrors/slashers so when i saw this i baught it immedietly. Previousley banned, gore and video nasty is written many times on the DVD sleeve so i was expecting lots of this film. But all i got was an avarage cannibal flick. There was even a statement by someone on it that said this would be 'one of the best cannibal films youd ever see'!
Now i must admit that this film isnt all that bad and should be viewed by all fans of the genier. But dont be expecting anything too great!
The violence in this film (which youll probably want lots of if you like this sort of film) is not that nasty but there are some bloody scenes every now and then. There is a scene that copys of 'Cannibal Holocaust' which is where a man gets his penis sliced off, although in this film it is very badly made and looks like a sausage!
Things that i shouldnt have to thell you is the quality of acting, special effects, dubbing, picture quality ect ect, which are all bad of course. But if your stupid enough to watch this and not enjoy this sort of film then you probably wont mind these things.
This film obviousley has a low budjet but if you were to compare it to other movies of the genier then it isnt that bad really. But if you were to compare it to any other film eccept from another B-movie 70/80s cannibal horror then it is obviousley still a cheap, crappy flick.
Overall this is a reasonably good Vipco' film with some bloody scenes but as i said earlier, dont be expecting anything too gory! For fans only!!!!!!!!!
